Carey I have a spare pressure switch if you need it! I bought a new one thinking mine was bad from when I bought it but it was just a clip that needed put back in. Pm me if you need it.

I sorry for bump an old topic I just have a few interesting observations from personal experience, maybe someone will need this information in the future. Go big or don't bother. I am running virtually the same unit as JP, but with an industrial continuous duty motor(18.5CFM). I also have separated tanks - yes, tanks. Reserve air beside your workstation can make all the difference when trying to knock off a stubborn nut with your impact or to keep the pressures constant on your plasma cutter. I just added a reserve tank hanging on the wall at any "drop" I may use with any kind of high volume/capacity tool.
I also built a water separator commonly called the "franzinator" - and it works AWESOME - thanks to Brad for the nudge in the right direction.
All that being said - the Quincy units are nice - very nice. Iron Eagle is one of the biggest names in Canada for Canadian built. You can also check out COMAIRCO - they sell to the public now, and are typically good to deal with. Princess auto also sells EAGLE brand stuff https://mechanicguides.com/best-60-gall ... ompressor/ under the powerful label - I used to know the guy in Winnipeg that did the "rebadge and reship" - so you could build your own with a bit of a reduction in overall cost, but unless you can scrounge tanks, switches, and various hardware, you will be hardpressed to match some of the prices offered by Peavey etc.
I like to watch YouTube videos of a similar subject when I'm looking for information about the right product. I hope this helps someone in the future. Good luck!
